Key item for safely rescuing an overboard person

  • 2,200 lb. breaking strength

Comments about West Marine Throw Rope, 50ft.:

Six years old and the bag is totally sun rotted. If you stow this on deck, guaranteed to rot. If stowed below or out of sight, not readily available.
Think they should be able to do better. Or carry spares for sale when they do rot out. Polypropylene line didn't rot however.

      Comments about West Marine Throw Rope, 50ft.:

      Purchased one of these a few years ago and it fell apart from the sunlight and I am a seasonal Northeast boater. This is a poorly made product for the money($$$$$). Planned obsolesence at it's best. Tried Returning to the store and he laughed at me and tried to sell me another at full price. I wouldn't buy a pump from them if I was sinking!

      Comments about West Marine Throw Rope, 50ft.:

      No one should leave the dock without one of these. You should practice using it before you need it, though. Throw it downwind and be careful about hitting things on the boat when you throw it. Side arm works well or overhand if you are clear of booms, etc.
